What works

Installer (64 bit)
Basic operation

Extension Warehouse opens in browser, you have to download the extension to a folder accessible by SketchUp, and load the RBZ file from SketchUp -> Window -> Preferences -> Extensions -> Install Extension... 

What does not

Extension Warehouse opens in browser (in Linux) so you can't install extensions directly from browser, the Extension Warehouse window within Sketchup is blank (nothing there). The fix is to download the extension and load it in Preferences window.

Often it does not register the keys I press (like shortcut keys, Ctrl-Z, Ctrl-Z, etc.), and I have to press 2 (or more) times to register the key press.

Sometimes it does not re-draw the window properly, and I have to minimize the window, and maximize it back to make it re-draw.


What was not tested

Style builder

Additional Comments

SketchUp gave me errors when I tried to execute it (missing DLLs). I tried several things, but I think the thing that made it work was this command: winetricks vcrun2008

question about installing
by Zack Friedman on Saturday July 1st 2017, 12:05
Hello, new to wine and Linux in general. managed to install wine successfully but when I run the SketchUpMake-en-ex64.exe installer i get an error about "unable to satisfy all prerequisites...." I have Winecfg running it as windows 7 but I'm not sure what "C:/windows/syswow64/mfc100u.dll" must be copied to "C:/windows/system32/mfc100u.dll" before running program" means. any help would be great.

thanks in advance

"On my 64 bit Ubuntu 14.04, SketchUp 2014 hangs after choosing a template. This has been reported as a bug and seemed to be fixed in Wine 1.7.19. However, I still get this error."
License problems
by Karoly Negyesi on Tuesday November 1st 2016, 13:41
On Arch Linux, I did a bit more than suggested but it seemed necessary based on other blog posts to make it work:

sudo pacman -S wine winetricks wine-mono wine_gecko
export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-sketchup
winecfg (Windows 7)
winetricks corefonts riched20 vcrun2005 vcrun2010
cd ~/wine-sketchup/drive_c
cp windows/system32/mfc100u.dll Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/SketchUp/SketchUp\ 2016
wine ~/.wine-sketchup/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/SketchUp/SketchUp\ 2016/SketchUp.exe

I am stuck at the license screen. Any ideas?
Magic Numbers
by Michael Uplawski on Friday August 12th 2016, 22:51
Good morning.

There will be a question further down.

I have defined the following magic numbers for the old version 8 and the current 1.6 release of SketchUp.
4 string \x53\x00\x6b\x00\x65\x00\x74\x00\x63\x00\x68\x00 SketchUp
>16 string \x55\x00\x70\x00\x20\x00\x4d\x00\x6f\x00\x64\x00\x65\x00\x6c\x00 Model
>38 string \x31\x00\x36 version 1.6
>38 string \x38\x00 version 8

I have put the same inquiry on but not received an answer for now:
(The man-page to magic is awfully complicated and after a few attempts I am no longer inclined to decrypt it)
What I want to know is, how I can extract version numbers directly from the “hexdump” of a SketchUp file (like the 1.6 and the 8, above) instead of repeating the number explicitly.

Also, if you knew of a way to discern the Trimble- from the Google-versions, it would help me a bunch. As nobody cares any more about magic, I consider it a possibility, that it will help only me, though... ;-)

Thanks anyway.
SketchUp 2016 64bits
by Juan Carlos Estibariz on Sunday July 24th 2016, 13:12
I got the 64 bits version working on Wine 1.9.11/Gentoo:

export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-sketchup
winecfg (Set version to Windows 7)
winetricks corefonts
Copied mfc100u.dll into windows/system32 (see Julian Hapke's comment)

Web stuff doesn't work as reported by Roman Anikeev
Install with Extension dialogs, Dynamic components and graphics export all working
by MOGhouse on Saturday March 26th 2016, 10:35
Here is how I make it work (32bit ONLY):
This will work: Dialog of extensions, Dynamic components, 2D grafics export .... just about everything will work.
Not working: Direct import from 3D Warehouse and Extension Warehouse, but download from a browser and install/import manually will work.

Fedora 23 with wine 1.9.5 Stagging (Fedora installs wine stagging by default, don't know if its needed).
You must have winetricks installed.

- Make a new and clean 32 bit prefix.

export WINEPREFIX=~/.sketchup
export WINEARCH=win32

- Install ie8 AND ie7

winetricks ie8
winetricks ie7

- open winetricks in terminal:


Make sure these DLL/components are installed:

- Open Wine Configuration in terminal:

Change OS to Windows 7 (from the default XP)

- Install Sketchup 2016 32bit (assuming you have the Sketchup installer in Home):

wine "sup_2016_en_x32.exe"


Do everything from the same terminal session, to make sure all changes are made to the new .sketchup prefix. If you start winetricks or wine configuration from your distro's menu system. changes will be made to the default .wine prefix - NOT what you want.

Trying to use Theme options in Wine Configuration will likely break Sketchup dialogs.

Hope this works for you too.
Install on wine 1.8.1 / debian unstable
by C. Scott Ananian on Tuesday March 22nd 2016, 16:06
This is what I needed to do to get sketchup 2016 installed:

WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-sketchup32 WINEARCH=win32 winecfg
-- at bottom of dialog, set windows version to Windows 7
WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-sketchup32 WINEARCH=win32 winetricks corefonts
WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-sketchup32 WINEARCH=win32 winetricks vcrun2010
WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-sketchup32 WINEARCH=win32 winetricks dotnet40
WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-sketchup32 WINEARCH=win32 wine SketchUpPro-en.exe

Note that this is the 32-bit version of SketchUp Pro, and that we are using a 32-bit windows configuration throughout.

Things seem to mostly work, but dialogs with web views are not integrated (the browser opens in a separate window, and the '' scheme used to communicate back with Sketchup doesn't work), some dialogs are blank white, and tooltips are truncated.

Dynamic component's settings don't work.
Everything related to web doesn't work.
Pages open in browser, not windows.

3D Warehouse doesn't work.
RE: Same issues with Ubuntu 16.04 Wine 2.4 geolocation does not work and all so keyboard shortcuts are all so not working
by Merlin@34 on Saturday April 22nd 2017, 14:31
Hi I have been attempting all the fixes in this thread and those for 32 bit but still cannot get shortcut keys and geolocation to work all so SketchUp crashes every 15 - 20 minutes gets annoying I do like the ease of use with SketchUp for fast drawings but a pain when you cannot use the keyboard or geolocation correctly

one needs to put mfc100u.dll into system32 of used prefix to make it run
RE: installation remark
by Ron Playbook on Saturday February 6th 2016, 13:58
Where can I find mfc100u.dll? I am having this problem where an error message comes up in the terminal that this dll is needed but missing. I tried installing the visual C components but still no luck.
RE: installation remark
by Julian Hapke on Saturday February 6th 2016, 14:04
Hi Ron, just google the dll, there are some webpages where you can download these files, e.g.
and just move it into the system32 of your wineprefix

by Ron Playbook on Monday February 8th 2016, 23:16
Thanks. Got it loading but another issue now. Will try again and come back if I can't get it going
RE: installation remark
by Gary on Wednesday February 8th 2017, 10:10
I have mfc100u.dll in the system32 folder in the used prefix and I still cannot access web or use the keyboard to change tools. Any other ideas?

What flavor of Linux are you using and ver of Sketchup?

I found that it was easier to just install the 2016 32bit version of make. I didnt have to do anything it just worked but I still might be able to help you. I'm running Linux Mint 18.1 which is based onUbubtu 16.04 and Wine 2.0
